Methodist University’s 17th annual Bullard-Templeton Lecture on Science and Religion will feature Lawrence Principe, who will speak on “The Origin of Life and Evolution: Must Science and Religion Disagree?” The lecture will take place at 11 a.m. on March 13 in the Physician Assistant Auditorium in the Medical Lecture Hall. This event is free and open to the public.

Principe is the Drew Professor of Humanities in the Department of History of Science and Technology at Johns Hopkins University and the Department of Chemistry. He earned undergraduate degrees at the University of Delaware and did his graduate work at Indiana University and Johns Hopkins. He is the first recipient of the Francis Bacon Medal for significant contributions to the history of science.

The Bullard-Templeton Lecture Series, which was originally established in 2000 under a Templeton grant, was renamed in 2006 after local businessman A. Howard Bullard, Jr. and his wife, Marta. The lectures are offered free to the public and are designed to explore the relationship between science and religion.
